Let Your iPhone Take Your Temperature

The iPhone is a pretty amazing device. It seems like it can do almost everything. From treating Amblyopia – lazy eye – to serving as a digital health concierge, this handheld device, with its ability to tackle so many aspects of health, seems to be the true definition of a smartphone.

Now add the thermometer to the list of useful purposes the iPhone serves. You can take your own temperature or someone else’s right from the iPhone using the Kinsa Smart Thermometer. The device simply connects to the iPhone headphone jack. The app will display the patient’s temperature almost immediately on the screen.

Smart-ThermometerWhat makes it even more advanced is that it can provide treatment advice and other information on what to watch for if the symptom gets worse. The app can even call your doctor and book an appointment at a local medical facility with the touch of a button. It will also allow users to create profiles and keep records of their temperature so they can closely monitor their health over time.

It is pretty amazing that just 10 years ago, a device like the iPhone seemed like something out of a faraway future. Now the capabilities are endless and the advances it is providing in healthcare are truly remarkable.
